#GloPoWriMo 2017 4 – brief dialogue concerning the naturalness of love

Standard

“Can we fall in love please?”
“Did you just ask me if we can fall in love?”

“Yes, I think I just asked you that.”
“I think it should come naturally.”

“Like?”
“Like hunger, thirst, being born and death.”

“How about tears?”
“Yes, tears too.”

“Peeing?”
“Sure.”

“Rain, earthquakes, waves, clouds, the light of the sun?”
“Yes, just like rain, earthquakes, waves, clouds, the light of the sun.”

“So like a cat purring, then.”
“Yes, I think you’ve got it now.”

“Let’s give it a sec then, maybe it’ll happen.”
“Maybe it will.”

“Let’s hope so.”
